Our inaugural Community-Building and Networking Program seeks to increase student involvement in the HBA and to connect pre- and post-doctoral students more closely with faculty members. To this end, we created new positions on the HBA Executive Committee – the Junior Service Fellows, who join the HBA to serve as point persons for this Networking Program.
Our Junior Service Fellows for 2022-24 are:
Tian Walker (University of Oregon), with research interests in insulin-dependent diabetes, chronic conditions, transgender health, mental health, nutrition, and health disparities with special attention on non-terminal illnesses and the ways they interact with stress and inflammation throughout the life course.
Anahí Ruderman (Patagonian Institute of Social and Human Sciences, Argentina) with research interests in nutritional status and food security of Latin American populations, from a comprehensive perspective. She focuses on genetic, environmental, socioeconomic, and cultural variables that contribute to nutritional status. She also studies how food security impacts on health and nutrition of Latin American populations.

HBA members will receive an announcement soon from our Junior Service Fellows, inviting members to this mentoring program in advance of our Annual Meeting.
